Plant a Letterbox Day

Spring is in the air, and you know what that means: Spring cleaning, allergies, and.... Plant a Letterbox Day! Yes, just one week away, our annual little test to crash Atlas Quest by listing too many letterboxes is upon us once again.

It's a great excuse to get out and plant those boxes you've been thinking and stamps you've been carving all winter. Or, if you've never planted your own letterbox before, take it upon yourself to join this other side of letterboxing and give back to the letterboxers whose boxes you've been finding all this time. Whatever your reason, just get out and start planting!

The rules? Go outdoors and plant a letterbox. Then come back and list it on Atlas Quest, being sure to list the plant date as May 24, 2008. It's okay if you have to work and want to plant your box a bit early or late--just be sure the plant date is May 24, 2008, and your boxes will be included as part of the official count.

You can see the last two years of planting results on the official Plant a Letterbox Day page on Atlas Quest. Last year, about 200 people planted hundreds of boxes. I think we can do better than that, however. ;o)

Hi,
We've already got some boxes planted for the day. Just have to write up the clues and post it on that day.
This is our first PAL day. :-)

Planted one for last PAL and have to keep up the tradition. I have an event for the same day so I asked all the attendees to try and do both. :o) Doing our part to keep you in business!
